Fertilpots are biodegradable wood fiber pots composed primarily of Spruce (Picea Abies) fibers and are manufactured without the use of glues or binders. These are not peat pots! Fertilpots are truly biodegradable and are intended to be planted directly in the ground or the next larger container. Unlike rice-hull pots, starch-based polymers, or 'biodegradable' plastics, Fertilpots do not require a composting situation to degrade.
Because water, air, and roots will penetrate the walls of the fertile pot so easily, there is no need for drainage holes. The natural root structure that develops helps to ensure a successful transplant. No other container, biodegradable, compostable or plastic, can allow more natural development of the plants' root structure.
Fertilpot is excellent for native plant material that can often be sensitive to transplant. Because the plant is never removed from the fertile pot, there is never any transplant shock. Fertilpot has been proven very successful in the production of vegetables, grafted wine grapes, forestry stock, as well as a range of annual and perennial crops.
